Hi Rob, there is a lot of information that you are looking for in the Technical Resource Library (TRL) Much of it does apply to Squarebirds in particular, but a lot of it also applies to other Tbirds as well. The general maintenance information in the TRL pretty well applies to all cars.

As for the best gas, unless your engine has been modified to accept the newer grades of fuel, you will probably have to use the higher octane gas. It is hard to say which gas station to use. One that is nationally known would be better. You may have to try a few different brands to see which one gives you the best service. As for the sticking rear power window, power windows are much alike. The electrical diagrams for our Tbirds are listed in the TRL. You can bring them up, expand them and print them out. You should certainly buy a shop manual for that year Tbird you are buying. All our Tbird vendors sell them, and many more manuals. You can find the Tbird parts houses all listed in the Advertisements Forum. When you get her and can, post some pix of her in the Our Rides Forum for us to see. Good luck with her. BTW, the link to the TRL is always below my signature element on any post I make.
